owie! that sounds awful - whether the therepy caused it or not it certainly did not aide in its healing by manipulating it so much. The 12th seems so far away when you are in such pain.

Awww no Lakota - that is all you need right now isn't it? I do hope that the doctor has a plan to get things sorted and pain free quickly - you deserve a bit of luck! xxx

I am sure therapy wasn't good for it, that is if you had the tear before therapy...Yikes!! I am glad that you are getting the right information now and get the help you need...

Good luck with the Ortho. At least you know what it is. I would not think that the therapy alone would have done it, but I have been wrong before.

Hi friend... Good to know you have the results back and hope they don't want to do more surgery. Does your physiotherapist do acupuncture? Many are trained to do it and it can assist in relieving pain and stiffness. Sounds as though you need some pampering for that warrior woman body of yours. You are amazing the way you just keep on keeping on with such a positive, valiant attitude. As you know by now I admire your strength...and sincerely hope that your embattled body finds lasting relief soon. In the meantime draw upon the love of and support of your many friends here...and in your home turf. We are all pulling for you...but only energetically. Sounds as though your body has been pulled, prodded and poked to last a lifetime or two! (smiles.) Much love and care... Raia

I didnt see any one there getting acupunture done but then I wasnt there all the time!. and I didnt ask. Oh yes the poking and proding was way to much and then they couldnt find the veins as they can only do that in the lefy arm now. can only take blood pressure there too and when they took that the blood would run way back in the tubing some times they flushed it back witht he saline. and that would hurt some I am so flushes out in that arm its made of saline now lololololol, hugs and blessing to you both!

Gee, some therapy, no doubt it did make the situation even worse than it was..if you had something even just slightly wrong before the therapy, it probably aggravated it all the more. Sending prayers to you that you find out what the Orthopedics say on March 12th
